This week I'm picking:
Expected publication: October 13th 2015 by Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
First impressions can be deceiving . . .
Devon has life pretty much figured out: she’s got her best friend Cas, her secret crush (also Cas), and her comfortable routine (mostly spent with Cas). New experiences: not welcome here. But as she enters her senior year, her parents take in her cousin Foster, an undersized weirdo who shows an unexpected talent for football, and star running back Ezra takes Foster under his wing. Devon can't figure out how she feels about Ezra. He's obviously stuck-up, but Foster adores him. Ezra has nothing to say to her, but he keeps seeking her out. And... Devon might actually like him. If only she can admit it to herself.
Funny, fresh, and layered, First and Then proves that change doesn't always tear things apart—sometimes, it brings them together.
Why I'm Waiting:
This sounds like my favorite type of book. I am curious about what happens with her relationships with both Ezra and Cas. Add in that this a debut author, and this looks like a winner to me.
